His jewelry is beautiful. I wish the princess ring came in a size 10, as I would love to purchase it...
I purchased to Love Moon ring and it is very pretty and well made. I am very happy that I bought it. Thank you!
Buana, My pearl and peridot "day dreamers" earrings are beautiful. Very unique and interesting. Thank you for your wonderful design and fine craftsmanship.
"The Face of the Moon" exudes such tranquility and the sliver work is so well done that I love this ring more than any other piece of jewelry I own. It's simply beautiful and I thank Buana for making it.

I ordered the sleeping prince ring for my eldest daughter, and when my younger daughter saw it, she had to have one. I just ordered the sleeping princess for her. They are beautiful items, and the detail is so clear.
Thank you Buana for my beautiful ear-rings. They are exquisite and the workmanship is wonderful. I cannot say enough good things. Namaste, Pat Kool

I HAVE BEEN AN IMPORTER FROM BALI , WHERE I WAS SO TURNED ON BY THE SKILL AND CRAFTSMANSHIP OF SO MANY CRAFTS, I WOULD GO TO A VILLAGE LIKE TAMPAK SIRING, OVER LOOKING AN ANCIENT TEMPLE, I WOULD DO ROUGH SKETCHES OF DESIGNS TO BE MADE INTOI 3 DIMENTIONAL MINIATURE CARVINGS, FROM COCONUT SHELL TO PIECES OF WOOD. THESE WOULD BE DRIED CARVED AND PAINTED AND IN THE BEGINNING WE MADE OUR OWN EAR WIRES, BEFORE WE GOT A CONNECTION TO SUPPLIERS IN JAVA. THEY WOULD BE MATCHED BAGGED AND SENT OFF TO THE USA. IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS NO ELECTRICITY, BUT AS THE BUSINESS GREW BECAUSE THEY WERE POPULAR , THE PEOPLE COULD AFFORD GENERATORS, BEFORE THEY WIRED THE VILLAGE. ONE DAY I CAME AND THEY HAD BOUGHT A SATELITE DISH AND WERE WATCHING A WRESTLING MATCH TAKING PLACE IN VIRGINIA WHERE I LIVED. I TOLD THEM AS THEY SQUATTED AND CARVED AND SANDED THE PIECES, THATHE PICTURE THEY WERE WATCHING WAS NEAR MY VILLAGE IN AMERICA. I NO LONGER IMPORT , BUT AM DRAWN TO THE PAST AND HAVE BOUGHT SEVERAL MOON RINGS AND EBONY RINGS FROM BUANA. I WAS DOING THIS 30 YEARS AGO AND AM SURE THAT THERE HAVE BEEN MANY CHANGES AND TONS OF TOURISTS. I HAD A HOUSE BY THE SEA IN KUTA, IN LEGYAN AND FINALLY AS THESE AREAS BECAME NOTHING BUT SHOPS AND TOURIST AND CARS AND MOTORBIKES, I WENT TO UBUD NEAR WHERE MY PRODUCERS WERE. I BELIEVE TAT EVEN WITH ALL THIS MATERIAL, THAT THE BALINESE CULTURE STILL SURVIVES. I ALSO THINKTHAT THE PEOPLE WHO WEAR SARONGS ARE MOSTLY TOURISTS WITH THE BALINESE WEARING JEANS. I PURCHASE MANY THINGS FROM NOVICA AND SEE THAT THEY HAVE MODERNIZED THE SELLING OF CRAFTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. WHEN I FIRST WENT INTO BUSINESS, I HAD TO SHOW THE PEOPLE HOW TO NUMBER AND PACK THE ARTIFACTS BEFORE THEY WERE SEA FREIGHTED. I HAVE BEEN TO PERU, MANY OF THE ISLANDS IN INDONESIA. I KNOW THERE HAS BEEN GREAT CHANGES IN THESE PLACES. I AM GLAD TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO TRAVEL ON A FEW DOLLARS A DAY.
I am in love!!! I just received my 'Majestic Moon' necklace and 'Midnight Tears earrings. And they are BEAUTIFUL!!! Your work is so delicate and clean, far more so than I could have hoped for!!! Now, if only you made the citrine solitaire 'Majestic' ring in size 7US, that will be my next purchase! Thank you very much. I cannot wait to share your beautiful work as gifts for my friends and family.

Buana, the carved bone earrings that I bought recently are exquisitely beautiful and well-made! I love them and have also ordered the matching necklace and cocktail ring. As they are both on backorder, I am very eagerly waiting to receive them. Terima Kasih Banyak Sekali!
Just received my 3 silver ring bands. The rings have a lot of detail and are of high quality. They are more beautiful in person, than on the website. Lovely packaging, a handmade jewelry box and a lovely card that I will keep. I am thinking about purchasing another set so that I can wear another as a thumb ring. Very happy with this purchase. I am searching for a new sterling silver ankle bracelet. Perhaps Buana will add ankle bracelets to his jewelry line?!
I received the Dreamer today. Oh, my goodness. I was taken with the utter beauty of it. It is rare that I have the reaction of having been breath taken by material handiwork. I have moon face earrings and ring from Buana also. You are my favorite. You have a beautiful God given gift. God bless you. Wishing you much success. Laura from Brookfield, WI
